4 /5

- Very deep purple-black with a narrow magenta rim. The nose is tight, with impressive depth and background, suggesting a wine with plenty still to give.
- The base of brooding dark berry fruit is laced with liquorice and dark chocolate. Fleeting balsamic, plummy notes emerge as the nose gradually opens up. On the palate, the wine has exceptional weight and volume, supported by a mesh of thick, dense tannins.
- Luscious blackberry jam and plum flavours surge through into a seemingly endless finish. A powerful and uncompromising Unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage retaining every ounce of aroma and flavour.

17 pts Revista de Vinhos - Appealing fresh and intense blackcurrant and cherry aromas with hints of eucalyptus and spice. The palate displays wonderfully luscious, rich black fruit flavour supported by firm but supple tannins. A sumptuous and richly flavoured Port which should have pride of place on any dining table.
